PITTSBURGH PIPELINE DELAYS LIKELY

Due to Road Construction

 

With all of the construction and detours taking place on major routes into Pittsburgh, the Pipeline drivers have had difficulty with keeping to the set schedule. The 10:30pm run into the city has been most affected.  

Please be aware that there could very likely be delays with pick-ups (both ways) this weekend as it gets later into the evening and construction shuts down inbound or outbound lanes at 10:00 pm. We ask for your understanding over the next several weeks as the construction continues.
